As an owner of an EVGA RTX 3080 10GB, the only drawback is the heat during load on the GPU.
With 100 % fan curve (yea its loud), it still reaches 82 degrees. Other than that, it's a good card for the price.
My older 1070 and 2080 never got passed 70 degrees with 65% fan curve, so I was a...
I'm in the process of installing Windows 7 then upgrading to Windows 10 through Media Creation tool.
This is exactly how I did it with my 2 rigs.
I honestly thought that stuff was over and Microsoft didn't offer the free upgrade anymore and that's why I bought a copy.
Windows 11 was actually installed, but it was upgraded from windows 10 in that free upgrade last year through TPM 2.0 bypass.
This is my moms rig that I handed down to 6 years ago.
Today, I tried to install the OEM DVD version fresh install of W11 that I bought and got the message "Can't run...
Long story short, I tried to install a newly bought OEM Windows 11 on an older rig for family member but it didn't meet requirements.
I just typed it in when asked to do so during installation and got this message.
Is the key still salvageable for a new install on new MB, Processsor and RAM or...
Old news, but stumbled upon this old Screensavers episode that states [H] got sued by Infinium Gaming?
I was a [H] Lurker back then and watched the Screensavers in the XP time period, so I was just watching it for nostalgia purposes.
Any old [H] members remember that incident? What ever...
Same here. I wen't from ATI AIW Vi/Vo 32mb to TI4400 and was shocked at how much performance I gained.
I was also surprised at how much the performance gained from switching to 6800gt oc from Ti4400. Good times.
When the 8800gtx/Vista came out. I stopped pc gaming for around 5 years and got...
Sniper Elite 4. First time playing the series, and I was expecting a COD type of shooter.
But turns out to be a stealth game and better than I expected. I might try out Sniper Elite 3 afterwards.
What series do you guys like better? Sniper Elite or Sniper Ghost Warrior. I have all the...
Been playing older street fighter games on mame and those games are fun as hell still, of course with an arcade joystick.
I also switched up to Ultra SF 4 and SFV and the gameplay speed in those games are slow as hell. The newer SF games aren't bad, but I prefer older Capcom fighters.
My first recording with a go pro. Just bought a hero 6 couple days ago and it''s alot better than my android phone I was using which has a 30 minute recording limitation.
Still tinkering with the settings but glad I bought it on sale.
The only thing I don't like about it is how the software...
I had a pretty good experience in Last Light. Didn't take me too long to complete the whole campaign. Around 10-12 hours IIRC.
The length of Exodus is what kinda scares me from starting it. I'm not ready for a 25 hour campaign, so I'll just save it for another time when I'm in the mood...
Splinter Cell Blacklist. I could never finish the game close to the end, so giving it another shot from the beginning. I'm not too optimistic about beating it though. Alot of hair pulling and rage in some parts.
Gears of War 5. The snowmobile scene's are pretty boring. They could have made those scenario's in the game a little less and more shooting. Just my opinion, but this feels like a fallout 3 clone.
Not a bad game, but gears 3 was a lot better. The beginning part of the game was pretty fun...
Mostly single player these days. The only multiplayer game I play is Battlefield 1 and Battlefield 4 and that's been going down for me lately.
When you've gone through all the multiplayer stuff the past 20 years, it's hard to get interested anymore.
Battle Royale seems to be everyone's...
Going through my 2nd playthrough because of the update 2 weeks ago. This time with a gamepad.
I gotta say, I enjoy it more with a gamepad.
I finished Gears 3 two weeks ago on Xbox and just wanted to skip judgement and go right into this game.
My favorite of the series. It's a close call compared to Blacklist, but this one edges out. I loved the control scheme with mice and kb. On Blacklist, I prefered with a gamepad.
Anyone remember StarForce? Damn, those guy's we're the most hated company back in that time period. The anti...
I was a little late on playing this game, but it turned out better than I expected. Only played a couple round's but it has some nice elements for team gameplay.
Might try it again after I beat Rise of the Tomb Raider.
I saw a PS5 available in Walmart around 6 months ago and didn't buy it. I made the wrong choice since it's hard to even get it now. If only I can turn back the hands of time.
Now, there's no GPU's or Consoles available.
Yea, this game is friggin hard as hell. I've seen other players ease past some of the level's while I have a hard time just getting by the first mission.
Gotta love mame and SNES emulators.
I might check out the latest release from Capcom. The updated visuals look really good.
I've been a CS player since 1999 beta and still haven't tried CS:GO. But from 2005-2008, CSS on HL2 engine was probably my favorite multiplayer shooter of all time.
After that time period, there we're better multiplayer shooters like BF:BC2 and BF3, so I was never really interested in the...
I enjoyed Last light, but 2033 was a little boring for my liking. Tried Exodus for an hour and the storyline/gameplay looks good, but the storyline was way to long for what I was looking for at the time.
I will try it again some other time when i'm in the mood for a 20-25 hour campaign.
Honestly, I had more fun in the early and mid 2000's than I do these days. Maybe i'm just getting old, but the games of today just bore the heck out of me.
I remember playing games like Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory and Farcry 2004 which amazed me how far we came after going through dx8.
The Ti 4000 series lasted pretty long in the DX8.1 days even though it was post 2001 (dx9 release). I had my Ti 4400 for 3 years until real games in Farcry 2004, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory came out.
It was more geared toward games like medal of honor: Allied Assault, Warcraft 3. That was a...
8800gt. My old backup was EVGA GTX 580, but that's in my retro rig now. And I gave my Asus DCUII GTX 670 to my mom.
Asus Strix 1070 and Zotac RTX 2080 is on current rigs, so if one of them goes kaput, I would need a newer GPU which is still impossible to get.
Asus makes good gaming monitors. I have the 43 inch XG43VQ Utrawide just for sim racing and 16:9 XG32VQ 32 inch for FPS games.
I upgraded from a 28 inch 16:9 and the extra 4 inches makes a huge difference with 144hz too.
The price tag for this one might be too big for everyone, so I'd...
Same goes for me. I really enjoyed BF1 multiplayer, but there's just something about BFV I didn't like. Not sure if it's the terrible map design, but it never clicked for me either.
Still to this day, I play BF1 couple times a week. Honeslty, I think BF1 looks better too.
Just finished Village and thought it was pretty good. Had some performance issues until I updated Nvidia drivers which was smooth sailing afterwards.
I'd give it a 8.5/10. Can't wait for the sequel. You know it's going to continue after seeing the ending. Don't want to spoil it for...
I played alot of street fighter. Used to play it a ton with my friends back in the day. Started recording recently and I enjoy all of them. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCy2-WbQ3EhKeFVBaFWI4IzA/featured
Even for games up there in age, they never get old. It's hard when you're playing and...
